eliminating "mounted filesystem" messages from syslog

http://www.unix.com – Hello all, perhaps this is an odd request, but I have the requirement none the less. Every time I mount a filesystem (at least an ext4 filesystem), I get a line indicating such in the syslog: Oct 9 22:26:28 sulaco kernel: EXT4-fs (dm-1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: I would like to not have these in the syslog. This is an encrypted filesystem that I would like to have no indication whatsoever that it exists. The OS lives on a regular non-encrypted volume. Obviously, messages in syslog indicating a mount of a Device Mapper (dm-1) filesystem will give away the existen (HowTos)
